Here's my stab at it: FrameMaker probably looks at the "modified" time stamp when it hits the EOF character. Then, if it detects that the modified time stamp and the "saved" time stamp are different from each other, it makes another pass at the file. To test this, I performed a Find without changing anything in the file. The Find sequenced through the files from my starting point, searching each file only once. Next, I repeated the Find with a Replace. I Replaced only one of the instances of the Find returning a hit, and I did this without leaving the Find dialog window. I merely used the Replace button.
To conclude, the resulting action of modifying a file is the same regardless if you exist the Find dialog and make the change via the keyboard or with a mouse gesture, or if you make the change in the Find dialog...regards, Kelly. -----Original Message----- From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Nancy Allison Sent: Friday, January 23, 2009 7:29 AM To: Lief Erickson Cc: framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: RE: Why does Frame cycle 2x ? Hi, everyone. I thought some more detail would be helpful. Here's what's currently happening: --I am searching for Markers of Type: Index. --I've selected "Book" selected as the thing I want to search (in the Find/Change dialog box). --I've opened all the chapters of the book (they're minimized at the bottom of the Frame workspace), and I began my search from the Book window, if that makes any difference. --Since the first marker is in Chapter 1, that chapter opens to full size when the search finds the first marker. --I have the Markers window open so I can see the text of each marker. --As I cycle through the document looking at the markers, I sometimes edit existing markers, or I put the cursor in the text and insert new markers. Then I go back to searching from that point. --When Find/Change has located the last marker in the chapter, and I click Find again, the search returns to page 1 of the same file instead of moving to the next file in the book. (And there ARE markers in all chapters, so it should open Chapter 2 instead of cycling again through Chapter 1). This is happening with a search for markers, but I have observed this behavior repeatedly in all kinds of searches. I see the same results coming up, in the same order, a second time; once the search has finished the second cycle, it goes on to the next file in the book. Surely other people experience this; it's seemed to be a Frame constant for years. If it's just me, what the heck am I doing to make this happen?

If you don't jump from the Find dialog into the document, FrameMaker only goes through the file once. I know of no way to have it stop once it reaches the end of the file without circling back through if I've made a change in the document that wasn't using the Find dialog. _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as kmcdaniel at pavtech.com.
